Join us for our 28-Day Clean-Eating Challenge. Spring clean your diet with clean-eating dinner plans, recipes, inspiration and tips.

Most Americans fall short of reaching the average recommended daily amount of 2½ to 3 cups of vegetables—which means they’re missing out on key vitamins, minerals and fiber. To help you get enough, add them to sandwiches, pastas and stir-fries. Try starting your day with vegetables at breakfast (like in this Green Smoothie recipe with kale) and be sure to add veggies to your dinner tonight.

Recipe to Try: Shrimp Piccata with Zucchini Noodles
